A VISIT TO PEAK PERFORMANCE

The other day I got the chance to get to know the brand Peak Performance better. Before, the brand was simply a sport / skiing brand, what do you call it? Active sportswear? Well, as far away from my lifestyle. Anyway, there is always something intriguing with a brand like this. They stay true to their roots and is in some way classic. So I was very curious to learn more.
And oh my was I surprised. Not only is the design for their casual collection really nice, the quality is amazing. Classic pieces like a blue oxford shirt made in the finest cotton paired with this winters biggest trend, a parka or a black down jacket under a elegant wool coat. Peak Performance has it all, and I have to mention it again, in the best quality. All the knowledge from the active wear is translated to the more fashionable pieces which I appreciate a lot. Clothes that are designed, wearable and lasting. I can’t wait to wear my new down jacket which has a perfect fit, I’ll show you when the time comes. Until then, I’m really liking this parka. 

Not only are the clothes really made well, their images and styling feels very right. 

Take a look at this really beautiful short movie as well.

Alexander Wang X WOOLMARK

Alexander Wang is known for using the best of materials and now he has teamed up with Woolmark.  “I have used Merino wool since I first started designing, so collaborating with Woolmark was a natural fit for me,” said Alexander Wang. “Wool has strong environmental credentials, and it always feels modern and relevant.” The pieces are most likely stunning. However, the image by Annie Leibovitz is brilliant!


 

Interview with Anna Rolfsdotter Jewelry

It’s not often that I fall in love with jewelry. They have to be unique, suit for everyday and stand out. Still, they have to be delicate. Anna Rolfsdotter jewelry is just this, perfect in every way. I love my hoop earrings and I can’t wait to get a necklace. I’m also happy to give you an interview with the designer herself.

Tell us about your jewelery? They are so Beautiful and delicate. How did they come to mind and where do you find inspiration?

First off, thank you for the kind complement! To begin with, I have always made jewelry as far back as I can remember, but it was not until I moved to London to study my degree that I really began creating.  While living in that vast and fascinating city, I found myself always searching for thin and delicate pieces of jewelry, but with little success, so I decided instead to make what it was I was trying to find. While studying anthropology and human behavior, my interests have mainly focused on how humans express themselves through various art and culture forms. I draw my inspiration from these different forms that can either come from particular works of art, or even a certain dance movement that expresses a particular cultural.

Furthermore, what I think is unique about Anna Rolfsdotter Jewelry, is that apart from the collection that is already made, I also fit to desire. Meaning, if a customer is after a certain piece from the collection, but in a different color or wants something completely unique, a kind of one off, we have a meeting where some ideas are offered and together decide the desired fit for the customer. I love working this way, because it really enables a more unique creativity and has also allowed more one off pieces to be made, for either brides to be or or for presents from guys who want to give a special one off piece to their partners.What piece are you favorite for spring,summer,fall winter?

My absolute favorite piece of jewelry is probably the very first piece that I made over 7 years ago and is still one that I continue to use almost daily, which is the large Smokey Quartz Briolette Necklace. and the second is the Hoop Earrings. The Hoop Earrings in smokey quartz, I absolutely love, because you can wear them any time of year and they are a perfect accessory. But also, you can buy add ons to them, and so switch the smokey quartz to coral if you would like them to be a bit more summery or even add on so that you have two stones on each earring. The smokey quartz and the Pink Chalcedony are really lovely together.What’s a must both clothingwise and accessories in the closet?

A must clothing piece, I have to say that instead of clothing, I am leaning more towards saying finding the perfect shoe. Because, clothes can look absolutely great, but what can really drag down what you are wearing are the shoes. At the moment I am loving my black Toms. Accessory wise, I have to say hats of different kinds. I love hats, because some of them you can wear year round and they show off a certain kind of confidence and elegance. Hats also remind me of a time when people put a little bit more effort into how they were dressed.

What are you reading at the moment and what music are you listening to?

At the moment I am reading Kate Mosse latest book, a historical fiction called Citadel. Music that I have been listening to varies a bit, it can be all from The Thunderbolt Revival, Fela Kuti, Ludovico Einaudi, to Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines.What’s your favorite jewelery piece?

My absolute favorite piece of jewery is probably the very first piece I made over 7years ago is still one that I continue to use almost daily, which is the large Smokey Quartz Briolette Necklace.

If your’e not a jewelry person, and just want to wear one piece. What should you go for and why?

If you are not a jewelry person but still would like one piece, I would say to go for a pair of earrings. Probably a pair of smaller ones, because they are not in the way as one might perhaps feel about a necklace or bracelet and they can just add that little extra to whatever one decides to wear.

Chloé’s Clare Waight Keller on Shopping Pre Fall

“Pre-Fall should deliver timeless staples that anchor the main collection,” Keller said in an interview with Net-a-Porter’s online magazine The Edit. “It’s the best time to buy investment pieces because the main collections consist of more challenging cuts. Think of the ‘pre’ pieces as building blocks.”

And if you ask me, I couldn’t agree more.

Mulberry and Emma Hills Part Ways

Mulberry’s creative director Emma Hill is leaving the fashion house. Hill, who showed her first full collection for Mulberry in September 2008, is understood to be leaving following disagreements with management over creative and operational strategy.
It’s a shame. Emma Hill gave the house a new more modern feel, with fun and interesting collections and accessories.
